According to the House members, who visited the premises, the NASS was pleased with efforts made so far by the DG to refurbish the Art and Crafts village expected to generate thousands of jobs when completed.
The honourable members further harped on the need to secure and maintain such places as the NCAC cultural site. They expressed full support of the Federal Government as the council seeks to reopen the village for the benefit of Nigerians.
Runsewe led the honourable members along with members of his management around the village explaining that no stone will be left unturned in a bid to rebuild the place to meet with international standards.
